State the obvious - you never know where it may lead
Students call for amendments to the Bougainville constitution

Mightier than the sword


Dedicated to the late Ian Boden

Alone you stand in life’s memory lane
Sometimes for the world
Sometimes against the world
Enemies came with their swords
You defeated them with your ink

How you make them stumble
How you bring about fame
How you applaud greatness
How you act as a downfall

Some see you as a troublemaker
But you are the voice of the people
An isolative, provocative and boring world without media
An educative, informative and entertaining world with media
Standing for and against the world for four decades
Until your ink had run dry.

Erased and deleted from the world
But treasured by the ones you have crossed paths with
A weakling I am in this world
But you showed me what I can do
Is mightier than the sword
